I have a 4.5-year-old boy who also is opposed to anything green in his diet. I sneak greens into him via smoothies and frozen smoothies. I often make HUGE batches of smoothie using whole bags of spinach, entire bunches of kale, broccoli, romaine lettuce, avocados and then adding berries, peaches, bananas, stevia and/or raw honey or maple syrup, egg yolks, coconut oil, kefir, fresh juice, etc. I also put a big dollop of high vitamin x-factor butter oil in my smoothies, but that's just me. Ummm, what else ... I sometimes substitute homemade yogurt for the kefir, and add more spring water to make a consistency that's drinkable. I get a lot of really good stuff into a smoothie, as my kids will drink them like they're chocolate milk and eat the frozen smoothie pops like ice cream.
